Delight in the Day with Jen

Hi everyone!  I have a layout to share with you today.  I created this layout using papers from the Serendipity paperline. I inked the edges of my papers with PurplePassion PowderPuff Chalking Ink and layered them onto my background paper. 

I also added diecut bows, banners and cardstock word phrases.

I cut the bottom of several of the cardstock word phrases so that they resembled banners.

Wherever You Go with Dana

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a layout. I combined several collections to create this bold color palette to pair with this photo of my brother and nephew. It matches their bold personalities perfectly!

I cut the quotes for this page from the Serendipity 500 and Sheer Joy 800 patterned papers. I had some leftover die-cut frames from a previous Club Q Kit that I cut into pieces to frame the circle piece of Calypso 100 patterned paper.

I had a lot of fun creating this layered paper embellishment for the corner of the page.

I pulled the patterned papers on this page together with some doodling with a white gel pen.

Let's Eat with Susie

Hello and welcome!  Susie here today with a Thanksgiving layout featuring the Cracklin' Rose collection. I used a sheet of Cracklin Rose 200 for the background.  I cut a 4" x 11.5" strip of Cracklin' Rose 300  and inked the edge with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink before adhering it on the right hand side.

The sentiment is from the Quick Quotes Holiday Bundle.  I distressed the edges, inked with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and popped it up with dimensional adhesive.

To create the title block I placed the sentiment on the red strip, adding chipboard elements from the Let's Eat - Bag O' Chips above and below.

Double Inspiration Monday!

We have a special treat to kick off your Monday - twice the inspiration for you!  How about that? Donna and Thandar are on the blog today with some very cool projects. Enjoy!


Hi everyone, Donna here with a project I did repurposing Jenga blocks. I was cleaning my son's toybox a while back, and these blocks were everywhere. I wasn't sure we had all of them, so I decided to keep some and I am so happy I did.

I wanted to make these reversible blocks for a while now. These are perfect for a small shelf to give it that holiday feel. What I did was paint the blocks brown all sides except one side and one top I painted black. Then cut the paper to size using the Silhouette. Glued them on, sanded and inked the sides, and added some brads with glue dots. Easy peasy!

Here is the Halloween side. The fonts I used on these are called Gracey's Curse and Vampire and you can find them for free at These could be easily made for Easter and Christmas or any other holiday really. I think Fourth of July would be awesome, each one could be a firecracker!

Products Used:
New! Alton 200
Quick Quotes Cherry Truffle

I hope I inspired you today and thanks for stopping by Quick Quotes.

Thanskgiving Card with Jen

Hi everyone! How about a little Thanksgiving card inspiration!
I created this card with the beautiful papers from the Cracklin' Rose collection. I inked the edges of my papers with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink and layered them onto my card base.

I tied a knot in the center of a piece of Ribbon, then wrapped the ribbon around the front of the card. I chose a Thanksgiving sentiment from the Holiday Quote Bundle, punched the corners of the sentiment with a decorative corner punch, then pop dotted the sentiment on the front of my card. To finish off the card, I added two gold embellishments.

Canvas Project with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a canvas that I created for my Mother-In-Law. We do not live close to our extended family, so we are especially thankful for the time we spend with them.

I started this project using a Quick Quotes Premier Altered Canvas Hanging Kit that was part of the Private Reserve class schedule. I only had one photo on hand, so I redesigned this kit from a wall handing into a canvas. Necessity is the mother of invention! I covered the two 4x6 Blank Canvases with Baggage Claim 200 patterned paper and the 6x10 Blank Canvas with Beautiful Life 300 patterned paper. I added canvas ribbon to each canvas.

I found a great quote in the Babies-Kids-Family Itty Bitty Vellum Box Set. I added a cardstock frame that I inked with Creamy Cocoa PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I topped the frame with a Want2Scrap "Love" chipboard, small flowers and a ribbon.

I created several flower clusters using Petaloo flowers and Quick Quotes Chipboard Leaves, that I colored with Java, Red Hot, Limeade and Green with Envy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I finished the canvas with Want2Scrap rhinestones and pearls.

A Day to Remember with Susie

Hello and Welcome!  Susie here today sharing a layout featuring papers from the brand new Antique Garden collection.

My girlfriend (and fellow DT member) Dana and I recently toured the Harley-Davidson factory in York, PA. I wanted to create something really grungy and industrial so I was a little surprised to find the perfect papers in a collection called Antique Garden!  One side of this paper is a beautiful yellow, gray and black floral...and the reverse reminds me of distressed concrete.  Perfect!


This vellum sentiment is from the Quick Quotes Inspire Bundle.  I backed it with a yellow patterned paper from the collection and built a collage of photos around it.

Quick Quotes has also released these new Rustic Patina Metal Embellishments. Love them! Nothing like a bit of metal to add an industrial feel, right?  I added  a black pearl to the center of each of the flowers.

I used washi tape to help create a title area and added a couple more self-adhesive black pearls.

I often tuck journaling tags behind pictures.  Usually I use plain manila tags, but this time I used coordinating paper from the new Alton collection.  I cut a strip of paper the same width and twice the length of a tag from my stash.

Fold the paper in half and glue the front and back together.  Use the tag as a pattern to clip the corners and punch the hole.  I used Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink along the edges:
To finish it off, I added black twine and a couple pieces of washi tape.

Want2Scrap 72 Count Self-Adhesive Black Pearls
Tim Holtz Ideology Alpha Parts
Washi Tape
